Genshin Impact gets cross-progression with the 2.0 update on 21st July, developer miHoYo has announced.
That's cross-progression across all versions of the hit free-to-play open-world action RPG: PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, PC and mobile.
miHoYo said the 2.0 update, dubbed The Immovable God and Eternal Euthymia, also adds "more refined" character shading, haptic feedback support for the PS5 DualSense controller, and more feature optimisations "to deliver a richer visual and tactile experience to players".
The 2.0 update brings with it the new Inazuma area located across the sea (the third of the game's seven major cities), as well as story-based main and side quests. The trailer is below:
Here's the official blurb on the new area:
"Unlike Mondstadt and Liyue, Inazuma is surrounded by the sea on all sides and consists of six main islands, often accompanied by a strong sea breeze and thunderstorms.
Although Inazuma is greatly affected by fleeting lightning and the Electro element, the Electro Archon who rules the area has turned to the pursuit of eternity. Throughout the adventure in Inazuma, players will be able to explore the unique cultural landscapes, stories, secrets, and historical connections to Inazuma and the Electro Archon on each of the different islands, as well as the answers to eternity from the Electro Archon herself."
Three new playable characters, Ayaka, Yoimiya, and Sayu, also hit the game with the 2.0 update. Here are the bios:
"Kamisato Ayaka, the daughter of the Yashiro Commission's Kamisato Clan, is often conceived as dignified, elegant, wise, and strong by the locals. She has been familiar to many fans and players since closed be ta testing, and will be added as a five-star Cryo sword user.
"Yoimiya is the other five-star character joining in Version 2.0. She's a Pyro archer and an expert in fireworks. Known as the Queen of the Summer Festival, Yoimiya excels in her craft of creating fireworks that symbolise people's hopes and dreams.
"The last character, Sayu is a new four-star ninja character who wields an Anemo Vision and a giant claymore bigger than herself."
